Tameka Norris creates a painting live in The Studio Museum in Harlem galleries. Norris cuts her tongue with the single stroke of a knife blade and drags it deliberately along the gallery wall, replacing brush and paint with her mouth and bodily fluids. Tameka Norris's untitled performance tests not only the artist's ability to tolerate pain but also the audience's ability to bear witness to pain.
